Wound Cord Cartridges

In my well house I have a 20″ “Big Blue” filter housing from Ametek.
It takes 4.5 inch diameter, 20 inch cartridges.
My local Culligan dealer sells the 5 micron cartridges to me for $48.00.
It looks like there would be much better prices with non-branded culligan water filters.

Some Reverse Osmosis Questions

We have a new home under construction in the remote mountains of Colorado.
In our new home, our water source will be a well and our sewage will go into a septic system. Our current home has a reverse osmosis unit so we have some knowledge of those devices.

On Wednesday of this coming week the drywall contractor will start closing the walls and ceilings. We will probably want reverse osmosis drinking water to be available at the Kitchen sink and at both sinks in the Master Bath. The Kitchen is directly above the Mechanical Room. The Master Bath is above a storage room.

Interested in low running costs.

American Plumber w50pehda

Thanks for your help about fluoride.

Could you tell me if there is an advantage using a copper/zinc shower filter for chlorine?

For chlorine only, carbon shower water filter technology may be efficient.
